    This is actually almost exactly what I'm looking for for my girlfriend's install. Too bad it doesn't have FM/AM radio or Wifi, but it might be easy to crack open and add honestly, depending on how much free space is inside. It might also be easy to install your own distro of linux. Tempting.

        It's got usb and runs ubuntu so adding a wifi dongle (internal or external) shouldn't be a problem. Same thing for bluetooth, fusion brain, etc.

          They have a wifi version with radio and it has an atom processor. The design of the face looks a little 80's to me though.

              This is the kind of products you can easily find on AliExpress etc. These are made in china obviously and there are tons of models available. If you really want one of these do your homework first (check the name on Google to see if there is some quality feedback).
              And when you buy, use the AliExpres Escrow system, you will be safe. Many vendors only take Western Union, avoid to get into this kind of payment methods. Many of them are not legit.
              Make sure you reply to the Escrow automated emails, otherwise the seller will be paid before you get the goods delivered.
              Also buy from a long established seller on AliExpress/Alibaba with lots of positive feedback, many are new with no feedback. Some are legit, but you don't want to take your chance.
